What is it about?
We used small devices for manipulating liquids to introduce nanoparticles and crystals into the X-ray beams produced by different commercial X-ray systems. By optimizing the number of X-rays hitting the liquid and the thickness of the liquid channel, we could obtain diffraction 'signals' from very short camera exposure times. This gives us the ability to follow fast changes that occur during the synthesis of new materials.

Why is it important?
These types of experiments typically can only be conducted at large-scale national or international particle accelerators. We have shown that it is now possible using commercial X-ray systems that can be purchased by most companies and universities.

Dataset for ‘Serial Small- and Wide-Angle X-ray Scattering with Laboratory Sources’
This dataset contains measurements used in the paper, ‘Serial Small- and Wide-Angle X-ray Scattering with Laboratory Sources' from the journal, IUCrJ (doi: 10.1107/S2052252522007631). Included are the raw SAXS, WAXS, and XRD patterns used in the evaluation of different samples, sample environments, and X-ray scattering instruments. From these data, the authors determined that it is feasible to perform serial SAXS/WAXS analysis of materials using laboratory X-ray sources with the aid of micro- and milli-fluidic sample environments.
